Your family

Ignite the imagination of older children with tales of ghosts, winding staircases, and the chance to try their hand at archery or croquet – or just run free in the 15 acres of grounds and gardens.

We welcome children from the age of 10 upwards, when they are more likely to appreciate the sense of history and incredible experience of staying in a ‘real live castle’. Located close to the amenities of Bristol and on the edge of the rolling landscape of the Cotswolds, Thornbury Castle also makes a superb base for a family holiday.

Our award-winning restaurant opens at 6.45pm, so that families can dine together in regal surroundings – or we offer a babysitting service so that parents can enjoy a convivial meal a deux, while the children dream of kings and queens in their four-poster beds.
